mexico or even repealing obamacare. but more questions of conflicts of interest were brought up. hallie jackson has more. >> a new video from the president-elect. >> our transition team is working very smoothly. >> donald trump listing off his ten-point plan. >> on immigration, i will direct the department of labor to investigate all abuses of visa programs that undercut the american worker. >> a tape produced by his own team. the press, not invited. his aide forced to fend off new questions about how the president-elect can juggle both his business dealings and the business of the country. >> by the time he takes office, as president of the united states, everything, every law will be complied with, every i and t will be dotted. >> his focus, the new d.c. hotel and a recent reception, complete with trump wine, meant to woo foreign diplomats. >> they spent a lot of time talking about the property and how they hope that, you know, this would be a property that the diplomats would use. >> the sales pitch raising

held in washington, d.c. in fact, one of the speakers praised donald trump with language similar to that used in notsa germany. >> for us as europeans it's only normal again when we are great again. hail trump! hail our people. hail victory. >> that speaker, richard spenter, telling nbc he intended his words to be ironic and exuberant, insisting the alt-right is not a neonazi movement. a trump spokesperson responded saying the president-elect has continued to denounce racism of any kind, and he was elected because he will be a leader for every american. joining me now for a closer look at president-elect trump's america first plan as worldwide stocks sore and his promise to repeal tpp on day one, the founder of the global strategy project. let's talk about two aspects of potentially donald trump's
foreign policy. the clear-eyed stuff he has been career about that he campaigned on, which is repealing tpp. what does that look like? >> apart from his overall foreign policy beyond the trade issue is still largely a blank slate. if you look at things like tpp, he's also looking at we will do bilateral deals. in other words, cantsal these bilalib bilateral deals and using a cost benefit analysis on what benefits what he says as america first. >> when we look at other big issues, particularly the ongoing civil war in syria, the irop nuclear deal, what policy positions can he favor or per sue to end the war in syria, and can he rip up the iran nuclear deal? >> the war in syria, please rr very much limited because much of it, when the uprising began in early 2011, much of what happened since then largely u.s.
inaction, has led a void which the russians have filled. whether aleppo will fall, that remains to be seen. trump is looking beyond syria. there will be continuity on the fight on isis in eastern syria and western iraq, but what he's looking at is cutting deals, for example, with mr. putin to reach an accommodation on syria and other places. regarding your point on iran, remember, the iran deal was a united nations security council deal, which is legally binding, but he has space in terms of the sanctions against iran. he can make them stronger, upgrade them, but the problem he may run into is if he's going to hit european firms, he's back to where he was several years ago in terms of destabilizing relations with european partners. >> the chance of doing something against iran bilaterally is much more difficult. let me ask you about syria. he's talked about a tougher
military strategy. do you see more military involvement in syria for the united states under trump? >> no, i think if you're looking at eastern syria and the war against isis, yes, the potential upgrade of it, strengthening of it, but it's important to see. if you look at the initial appointments, for example, national security adviser, flynn. also you have the cia director, representative congressman pompeo. people are thinking this is going to be -- it's heart starting to form to be a hawkish national security team, but the key thing, i don't think it's a neocon time that's going to want to redesign the middle east and the region, but it's going to be mostly one that says on a limited basis, when you mess with america, we'll hit you and hit you hard. >> unless they get john bolton, no neocon in the state department. >> remains to be seen. >> all right, well, let's take a quick look at the weather, but a live report from japan on the powerful earthquake that rocked the northern part of the country and generating a tsunami in the
process. >> meanwhile, parts of the northeast are still digging out from the massive first snow storm of the season. some areas in upstate new york are already getting over two feet of snow. here with your forecast, bill karins. >> thanks. pretty impressive snowfall totals. now we're dealing with a new storm system. this will even give us the potential for additional heavy snow in the mountains of colorado and over minnesota. the other fly in the ointment is we could see severe weather, maybe an isolated tornado in eastern texas. the storms will form over austin, san antonio, and dallas and head to eastern portions of the state. we're calm in the west but that will changeer there around eureka and shasta. sacramento and san francisco southwards should be dry.
of course, tomorrow is the busiest travel day of the year. i'll give you that forecast coming up. >> watching that closely. thanks very much for that. just ahead, a word of warning for drivers before you hit the road. plus, is donald trump's pro-business agenda fueling wall street's santa claus rally? what's the best way to get two servings of veggies?

live for us. what can you tell us about today's earthquake? >> reporter: well, the overwhelming concern today, of course, was that the strength of this earthquake could trigger a tsunami and the warnings stayed in effect for several hours. about four and a half feet that hit some parts of the island, but there were no reported deaths. very few injuries, and very little damage to actually see. you compare that with the tsunami in 2011, where the waves were 30 to 60 feet. but there was a lot of anxiety today. the fear still very fresh in people's minds. japanese broadcasters under instruction from the government were told to issue very emphatic warnings to people to evacuate. they did in several languages to insure foreigners understood. officials at the nuclear power plant say there was one reactor that was knocked offline, but it was back in operation after 90 minutes. no sign of damage, and the slight increase in temperature
